Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

Healthcare Provider Resources

The Arizona Department of Health Services recognizes that pediatricians have a lot on their plates! The checklist for a well-child visit is staggering, and sometimes screening for lead poisoning is not perceived as a beneficial use of a physician's limited resources. To better equip physicians to incorporate blood lead screening into their practices, ADHS has streamlined our screening and reporting protocol to make this simple test even easier!

Screening recommendations

Targeted Screening Plan

  • ADHS Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Targeted Screening Plan
    ADHS has developed a targeted screening policy based on geographic testing for children who are at higher risk of lead poisoning. Surveillance data is analyzed annually to identify zip codes at greater risk of childhood lead poisoning. All children living in targeted zip codes should have a blood lead test at 12 and 24 months of age. Children living in Arizona, but not in a targeted zip code, should receive an individual risk assessment questionnaire at 12 and 24 months of age.
